Connecting to V-Lab from Mac
The following steps provide an overview of how to connect a Mac computer to V-Lab (Remote Software Access).
Before logging in to V-Lab, ensure that Microsoft Remote Desktop is installed on the device.
If it is not installed, visit the App Store and download the newest version.
(Please Note: older versions of Remote Desktop will not work properly.)
Be prepared to enter your Apple ID and approve any permissions/access needed for the application.
Visit the V-Lab site at https://vlab.siue.edu and log in to the Remote Resources software service.
Click on the application you would like to open and download the file.
When prompted to enter your username and password, enter "campus\eid" as the username and then enter your password. Click Continue.
Some Mac devices will prompt you to choose a folder location to grant V-Lab access. If you are prompted to do so, follow the below steps:
Click the drop down menu titled "Select a folder to access remotely".
To ensure V-Lab has access to any saved files you may have on the machine, choose "Macintosh HD".
